Funny Lady Alert!

My crushometer started beeping like crazy this morning, and for once was not this guy. Turns out the perp was Aubrey Plaza, who's sure to appear on many additional love-radars in the upcoming months. Read on for why! Read more »

9021OMG, Feminism?

It's sad to remember how high my hopes were for CW's 90210 last summer. I love Fox's original series, Beverly Hills 90210 (though bad dialogue and one-dimensional characters make for a rocky relationship) and I love Rob Thomas (of Veronica Mars), who was supposed to be writing this thing and...

The Price of Fey-m

There's a lot to love about Tina Fey's sexy-geek image. For instance, "Geeks can be sexy!" is an awesome message, as is "Sexy women can be geeks!" (Okay, maybe there are only two things to love.) I think it's safe to say we get it: She's hot. She's smart. She's hot, yet smart. And vice-versa. But... Read more »

A Little More Consideration for Women in Film in 2008

The run up to the Oscars is dominated by best-of lists, and - with few exceptions (including the Women Film Critics Circle Awards) - most of those lists end up looking just about the same: dominated by men,... Read more »
